Dorothy "Dot" Mary (Branca) Carneavale, age 96, of East Norriton, joined the Lord on Friday, September 22 in a very peaceful passing.
She was born September 30, 1920 in Norristown, PA and was a member of St. Titus Parish in East Norriton.
Dorothy lived a life dedicated to her family, which includes 2 sons - Henry (wife Marcia), Keith (wife Elaine), and a daughter, Elaine Ocelus, who predeceased her in the year 2000. Dorothy's husband, Henry, and her celebrated 60+ years of marriage together before he passed away in 2009.
Dorothy also is survived by 6 grandchildren - Eddie Ocelus (Danielle), Carissa (Dave) Meyer, Jennifer (Kevin) Thompson, Tony (Lora) Carneavale, Tyler Carneavale and Justin Carneavale, and 5 great grandchildren - Kaity, Megan, Courtney, Ellie and Owen. A twin sister, Mildred Melnick, survives her, along with extended family of nieces and nephews.
Dorothy's early life included a couple of jobs but in later years she enjoyed some traveling, Mason activities with her husband, being part of a senior bowling league until recently, day trips to the casinos, reading a good book and always a good meal out. Her home was the gathering place for making specialty holiday meals and occasionally hosting those same meals. She was deeply loved and will be missed.
